The African American (AFAM) Studies minor is an interdisciplinary program of coursework designed to expose students to the culture, literature, art, music, psychology, sociology, religion and the health issues of Africa and the African Diaspora. The program, through a multidisciplinary approach, focuses on the experiences of the descendants of Africa. It encourages the global connection between Africa and America through the culture of African Americans. Through this interdisciplinary approach, students will enhance their communication skills, oral and written, and critical thinking skills. To fulfill a minor in AFAM, students must complete 18 hours of AFAM coursework. There are 2 required courses for the AFAM minor, AFAM 2010 and HIST 3230, and students will take an additional 12 hours of AFAM courses.
